Technology Leaker says iPhone 13 will have the awesome new feature Apple fans have wanted for years
iPhone 12 and 12 Pro review: Simply extraordinary
5G support, a new striking design, improved cameras and four different models all add up to make the iPhone 12 an absolute unit.There is one big difference with the iPhone 12 generation, though. It's the first time there are four new iPhones at once: the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. If you want to go small and reap the benefits of a lower price there's the Mini. If you want the biggest iPhone with the newest in iPhone cameras, get the Pro Max. But that leaves the 12 and 12 Pro which are similar (like basically-the-same-phone similar). That's not necessarily a bad thing.
- iPhone 12 sales have just started, and the phones are . But the first rumor about future iPhones is already here.
- A reliable leaker says that Apple plans to bring back one of the iPhone’s most popular features: the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
- The iPhone 13 might be the first iPhone to feature both Touch ID and Face ID if this leak turns out to be accurate.
The iPhone 12 just got here, but we already have an exciting rumor about future models to get us talking. After all, it’s widely known that development for the next-gen iPhone starts about a year before the latest phone launches, so Apple must already be working on iPhone 13 prototypes in its secret labs.
India: Hundreds of thousands of tea pickers in Assam on indefinite strike
© Biju BORO / AFP Tea pickers joined farmers in protesting the liberalization of the sale of fruits and vegetables. The strike began this Friday, October 9 to demand wage increases. These workers joined the farmers, who have been protesting for two weeks now against the new selling prices for fruit and vegetables. With our correspondent in Bangalore, Côme Bastin The State of Assam produces nearly 50% of India's tea, and it is found on many tables around the world.
And we already have what might be one of the most exciting iPhone rumors in years, from a cryptic source that has provided plenty of hard-to-decipher clues about unreleased Apple devices. Many of those clues turned out to be true, and the person now indicates that Apple might be working on a feature iPhone fans would love.
In the months leading up to the iPhone X launch, plenty of leaks saidthat would allow Apple to use an all-screen design and ditch the home button. As we got closer to September 2017, it became clear that Touch ID would vanish, and Face ID would take its place. I’ve explained more than once why Face ID is so much better and more intuitive than Touch ID and that I wouldn’t want to go back to a Touch ID-only device.
When is iPhone 12 coming out? We now know for sure
We now know the iPhone 12 will be announced on Oct. 13.Although Apple held a September virtual event (here's everything Apple announced), those expecting iPhones were disappointed -- the event focused on the new Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE and iPads instead. The announcement date for the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Max and possible 12 Pro Max (or the iPhone 12 Mini?) remains up in the air. Note that Apple has not confirmed the names of the phones, but we'll go with those for now. Our best guess, however, as to when Apple will announce the phones is either Oct. 13 or 14.
Of course, then the pandemic arrived, and things changed rather drastically. The 3D face recognition doesn’t work with face masks on, and you need to use a regular PIN to unlock the phone and anything else that’s protected with a password. That has turned out to be an incredibly annoying chore.
Twitter account L0vetodream, who some fans might be familiar with, just posted the following tweet:
MESA uts for iPhone
— 有没有搞措 (@L0vetodream)
“MESA uts for iPhone” might look like a series of typos, until you remember that Mesa is the internal codename of Touch ID, and “uts” may stand for “under the screen.”
Many of those iPhone X rumors that said the phone would feature in-display Touch ID were believable because Apple had developed several methods to read fingerprints through the display. Some relied on ultrasound, and some were optical. Since then, we saw Android phones go the under-display route. Very few of them actually tried to replicate the more elegant but more expensive 3D face recognition system.
iPhone 12 launch shouldn't be a COVID-19 superspreader event. Skip the stores
Commentary: Waiting in the usual hyped-up Apple store line isn't worth the risk of getting the coronavirus.If there's any confusion on this, let me clear it up for you: Stay away.
Last month Apple confirmed that it hasn’t given up on Touch ID by adding. For the first time in an iOS device, the power button houses the Touch ID sensor. Just like it’s happening on the MacBook Air and Pro.
That’s the kind of solution that would work great during the pandemic, and the health crisis will last for at least one more year, if not longer. When Apple started work on the iPhone 12, there was no pandemic. By the time COVID-19 got series, Apple was probably well beyond the point of no return. The iPhone 12 design, specs, and supply chain were likely finalized.
But Apple has time to add Touch ID to the iPhone 13. The leaker made no indication what sort of iPhone would debut the feature. We’ve had reports in the past that said Apple would equip both Touch ID and Face ID on the same iPhone and that the move is planned for 2021. Those rumors predate the COVID-19 pandemic, so Apple must have been working on the technology for quite a while. As Apple fans know by now, Apple will not release any innovation until it feels the tech is reliable and ready for public use. AirPower is an exception that further reinforces that rule.
Separate reports have claimed that Apple is working on iPhones without notches. That’s a design decision that implies the selfie camera goes under the screen, hopefully alongside the Face ID components.
As always with Apple rumors, nothing is final until Apple unveils on stage, no matter how reliable the leaker is.
